Walter Wirth - quickie report

I had a little time to kill today, so I swung by Walter Wirth lake today in Salem. I was there from about 2:20 until 2:45. There were about 18 peeps, with lines in the H2O. Most were using Power Bait or Power Eggs. And a couple were flipping kastmasters and / or spinners.

Right as I pulled to a stop, and shut OFF my motor, I watched one dude pull in a shiny bow. I was about 80 yards away; but I'd peg it at 13 to 14 inches max. The rest of the time that I was there; no one else even had a bite. There were a few bigguns, surfacing. And they were close to shore; which stands to reason for brooders.

Well...that's about it. Except, I wondered if any OFFers were at Wirth this afternoon. Please chime in, if you were there today.

Happy trails, TD

I was there on Saturday. Started out SLOWWWWW and then they started biting and most people were getting them in the corner in front of the parking lot right next to that dock thing that goes out. Watched a dude walk out on it with a blue spinner and pull three BIG ones out, prolly in the 17 inch to 20 inch range.

Let me know when you head out again, I might head that way if the weather isn't bad.

Ya, I usually just call it Cascade Pond.

Now that is TOO funny. I watched you walk right past me, and start casting. I was only about 20 - 30 yards behin you; in a blueish Honda. I saw you make about a half dozen casts, but didn't see you get anything. Did you have any luck?

Lots of area lakes are still open; as are a few streams. Just check your reg book's listings.

No luck, had one hit. Monday, I caught 8 all over a pound on the fly, just using a black fly with a gold bead and a bit of flash to it, I was the only one catching anything basically shoulder to shoulder in that corner next to the bait guys.

The primary reason that I usually don't care for that lake; is becuse of the strange (and often rude) peeps that go there.

But ya know...if a bunch of groovy OFFers are all gonna be there...youse guyz just might talk me into it!

Rude people make great fishing pole holders if they land just right after pushing them down :) J/K :)

HAHA.

They make great bait as well, for Sturgeon or Crabs.

I've been sorely tempted, on occasion, to see if weebles sink or swim.
